9 am-3:30 pm
All children ages 10-14
Deposit required: $540
Space is limited to 10.
In this camp, we will investigate the science and technology of photography. Did you know you can make a photograph without a camera? Did you know that you can have a camera without a lens? We will discuss the history of photography, the chemistry of light reactive paper, and the technology of cameras.
We offer five stand-alone STEAM camps, during which campers will investigate the science, technology, engineering, art and math of a different topic. Each day will be spent doing hands on projects and making art. Campers are welcome to attend for one or more weeks.
